Walton County School District COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies for the 2021-2022 School Year

  1. If a person is sick (students, teachers, staff, and visitors), they should stay home.
  2. Hand sanitizer is available at various areas inside the school.
  3. Cleaning and disinfecting school facilities/buses which are occupied by students will be completed daily.
  4. Adequate mitigation supplies are on hand at all schools/facilities (hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, etc.).
  5. COVID-19 contact tracing is occurring in all schools/facilities.
  6. At this time non-essential visitors and volunteers are not allowed to enter schools. Starting Tuesday, March 1st visitors and volunteers will be allowed to enter schools during the school day.

 

*Please keep in mind that although COVID positive cases may represent a student or staff member within the WCSD, it does not necessarily indicate that the virus originated within the WCSD.  It is also important to note that a portion of the positive cases involve individuals who may have never entered the school setting while sick due to proper quarantining.
